The project originally started life as a planned decked area, but subsequently grew in concept to become a large Garden Room that could be enjoyed as a separate space to the main home.
The completely self-contained project incorporates bifold doors with modern integral blinds and a thermally efficient glazed roof that incorporates active blu glass for year round use.
One unusual aspect to the Garden Room was a large tilt and turn window, which was incorporated at the far end of the project as a means to provide additional ventilation.
Ian Davis, Sales Manager at frameXpress considers the growing consumer trend to personalise properties continues to be an area of great potential for builders and installers, with the combination of performance and aesthetics improving lifestyles and ultimately adding substantial value for homeowners.
Ian comments, “There has been a noticeable increase in original projects such as this, with consumers wanting to increase the value of their properties whilst still being able to enjoy the investment they have made to the full. New performance innovations that have been achieved in glass over the last few years have stimulated this part of the domestic sector.
“It is obvious that by providing striking product design options is giving our customers greater scope as there are substantial financial benefits for homeowners. Here they have gained a totally separate area that will provide them with a personal haven to use all year round, which is a real advantage that can be inherited when the time comes to eventually move home.”
Insulation and security remain important aspects for investors with frameXpress customers regularly mentioning solar reflection, noise reduction and year round use when discussing new projects.
Ian Davis comments, “Using thermally efficient glass roofing systems together with the Optima system or our aluminium option provides customers with complete reassurance in relation to business growth and referrals.”
Ian concludes, “Dynamic design, thermal efficiency and every day use are also extremely attractive to second generation investors, who have previously been disappointed and are now hoping to add true value to their properties.”
